Hello Everyone!

is there any difference between the below sentences:

Please fax it in at 888888
Please fax it through at 88888

Thank you!

    I think both are fine.

    I might say "Please fax it to 8888888."

    But again, your own versions are okay.

    I might have seen this: Please fax it through at 88888.

    I don't think I've seen this (though I would understand it to mean the same thing): Please fax it in at 888888.


    I would expect to see either, Please fax it through to recipient at 88888 or Please fax it in to recipient at 888888.

    Hi perpend!

    Thank you for your quick reply. Actually I was not thinking of the use of "AT". So you suggest saying fax in To is more idiomatic?

    Have a great day too, Thawt! :)

    Just to be doubly clear.

    You fax to 888888.

    NOT: You fax in to ....

    Alternatively, there's either, Please fax it through to recipient on 88888 or Please fax it in to recipient on 888888, or plain old Please fax it to recipient on 888888.

    Those are BE usages, Beryl, to my knowledge, but maybe that's exactly what Thawt is looking for.
